At Scans Daily we recognize that not everyone starts from the same place in discussions about privilege and discrimination. We have put together a list of resources to help us navigate this difficult area. Additionally, we've included some netiquette and slang guides, and other helpful links.

LJ Communities | The 101s | Privilege | Conversation



This list is only a start. If there is a resource you would like added to, or removed from this list, please let us know. We consider this project a work in progress to be updated and revised on a semi-regular basis.

Oh, "entitlement" is often used as a counterpart to "privilege." ("The world owes me," that sort of thing.) I don't know if the numbers are equal or not, and of course most people don't see themselves as having either privilege or entitlement problems.

And I really should have specified that was a generic "you," not you as an individual. As in, "You work and save and what happens? The company closes." I wasn't addressing that to you specifically. (Maybe English could use a word for the generic "you"?)

"One."

Oh, yes. Thanks, I'll use that. It sounds a bit formal but that is fine with me.

Scans Daily
Founded by girl geeks and members of the slash fandom, [community profile] scans_daily strives to provide an atmosphere which is LGBTQ-friendly, anti-racist, anti-ableist, woman-friendly and otherwise discrimination and harassment free.

Bottom line: If slash, feminism or anti-oppressive practice makes you react negatively, [community profile] scans_daily is probably not for you.
